Everytime I hit a bump I hear a clunk in the front end of my 2003 ford f250 superduty. I've changed all ball joints, the tie rod attached to the pitman arm. It also has unstability in the steering. It wants to dart either direction

I'd be inclined to check the suspension. Jack vehicle up so wheels hang free & check the mountings, springs/shock absorbers, & sway bar.
Also 'bounce' the vehicle at each corner in case a shockie has internal problems,

I have a 2004 F250 and when I hit bumps sometimes my wheel starts to shake really bad and then it goes away. Any guess to what is causing this.


Tie rod ends, controll arm bushings, ball joints, shocks, Springs, torsion bar, tires, rim, Worped rotors. It could be a number of things. Usally, that particular problem sounds like a tie rod end or shock.

Have you looked at your anti lock braking system. It will give a pulsation when it is in use. You may have a problem with it and it is coming on prematurely. Listen when your truck is doing this and you should hear the humming of the antilock system if it is on. Otherwise i would ckeck your ball joints and tie rod ends for wear as this can cause a vibration back thru your braking system as well

When I hit a bump the front end shakes and makes a clunking noise


Could be alot of things like worn out bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, radius arm bushings(which is common) you should have this checked out before it gets worse and cost alot more to fix what could be an easy, inexpensive job.

Clunk or rattle in front end purchased car new never smashed only happens when you hit bumps


You should check your front end, ball joints and tie rod ends for play. To do that jack the car up and set in on blocks so the front wheel hangs free. Grab the tire at 12 o'clock and 6 and try to move it in and out. If the wheel moves you have a bad ball joint, a helper to watch while you move the wheel will tell you upper or lower. Do the same at 9 and 3 to check tie rod ends. Again movement will indicate a bad tie rod. Check for inner or outer. Look at your shocks for signs of leakage. Aleaky shock could also make a clunk.
If everything appears to be tight then remove a wheel and look at your brakes, A loose caliper, pads flopping. Pads should only move in and out to the rotor and the caliper shouldn't move by hand. Hope this helps.

A noise coming from front end of my saturn is it my tie rods


The noise you hear could be the tie rod ends or several other front end items. Can you jack up the front end? If so then turn the wheels from side to side with your hands griping the wheel at the 9 and 3 oclock positions. if you feel freeplay or looseness you have to reach arround and place your hand on the outter tie rod end and see if the play is there or the inner tie rod end at the rack. I worked for saturn for a few yaears and we had ALOT of front struts that made a clunking sound over bumps. Don't forget the lower ball joints could be bad also. Check these by placing your hand on the bottom of the wheel and pushing and pulling on the wheel with it off the ground while checking the tie rod ends. Good Luck, Scott
